And yet another release this week – this time, it’s the Opera beta update. We’re getting close to the release candidate, so this beta is getting pretty awesomeโ€ฆ we hope ๐Ÿ˜‰

Translations

We have finished all translations for the new UI elements. They should be available in this build, so please report if there are any of them missing in your language.

Sync enhancements

We are rolling out some security enhancements, and we are going to share more details in the future. For now, please be advised that if you use a passphrase, you will be able to sync only between the latest desktop clients (Opera Desktop 40 and 41).

Known issues

There is a hardware acceleration issue on Windows 10 systems with Intel HD5500 integrated GPUs (Windows 7 machines seem to be not affected). The issue causes repaint problems in the form of black areas. We are investigating it. It occurs particularly during the activation of the window from the background. Please let us know about your graphic card version if you spot black areas on the canvas of the Opera window.


The changelog is available here.

    Downloading. I’m very curious.

  • Juan Vase

    The post still isn’t updated in Personal feed, that is bad ๐Ÿ™‚

    Plus, Opera doesn’t keep me logged in when I clone this tab.

    • That’s bad. That bug was fixed some time ago. I got to this post today right from my personal news but I’m using developer ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Ralf Brinkmann

    TAB TAB TAB on download page (CTRL-J) for jumping to the button “Clear download list” still does not work. ๐Ÿ™

    This is Ukrainian translation.

    • Kornelia

      Thanks, I’ll report this.

      • Nekomajin43

        The hungarian translation has some gibberish since the beginning. You should really contact the translator…

  • iYuzver

    Please make synchronization extensions!!! Make synchronization of news subscriptions. Make synchronization search engines. Each time it re-create the terribly annoying.

  • AlkaSetzer

    I’m having issues with desktop notifications freezing Opera (this beta, the previous beta and dev version), is this a known issue?

    Windows 10 Pro x64 build 14393.105

    • Aneta Reluga

      Quick check – no freeze for me on Win7. But thanks for the report, we’ll dig into in on Win10.

      • AlkaSetzer

        Hello, thanks for checking.
        I’ve submitted DNAWIZ-6322 about this issue. The issue persists on the new developer release and appears to not be related with chromium (as chrome 55 does not have the problem).

  • Daivy Merlijs

    Is VPN will be part of stable release ?

    • BK

      That’s the plan

  • yigido

    One sentence still not translated in Turkish version of Opera.
    Please see the report: DNAWIZ-6345

    I suggested you a translation.
    Thanks,

    • Aneta Reluga

      AFAIR it was approved and incorporated into 41 but not backported to Opera 40. Thanks.

      • yigido

        So, we have to wait 1 more major cycle for this translation.
        Thanks.

  • ratamies

    Belarusian language is missing in the list of available translations in settings.
    DNAWIZ-6350

    • Aneta Reluga

      Thanks. We are working on this issue; meanwhile, it is possible to do the overinstall with the manual installer, from where this translation is available.

  • Jean Racine

    There is a new feature in recents opera beta release and its awesome. When i use the virtual keyboard on my Surface, the login window move and i can see what im typing when the login and password window is “under” the virtual keyboard. Its a very good idea. Congratulations!

  • Nico

    I’ve found two errors in the German translation (the second one is an old one, but seems to have never been mentioned before):

    1. Please have a look at the VPN options. The first sentence below the option to activate VPN is still in English:

    https://postimg.org/image/ybt5b184d/

    2. You’ve translated “Themes” with “Themen” in German, but this is not quite correct, as “Themen” means “Topics” and is not common to describes Themes. You should just stick with the English term, because “Themes” is a common Word in German. If you don’t want to use “Themes” for the German translation, you could also use “Designs”:

  • Toshiyuki Saito

    No Japanese translation for “Show suggestions” at the config option panel opening the top right button at the Speed Dial.

    • BK

      Hi Saito ! Thanks for report.

  • Hetai-Na

    Please, remove the “search” word, it’s redundant.

    Put a limit in the number os chracters shown in e-mail used in sync in O menu. It makes the menu too large, and ugly…

  • Hetai-Na

    Please add a share and reader function and improve font rendering in Opera.

    In the adress bar the globe icon for non protected pages and the padlock icon for https pages have different widhts, and this is ugly. Please fix!

  • Hetai-Na

    Scrolling could be better too. It is to fast in my system (W10 x64, touchpad synaptic).

    Opera Sync should sync extensions… It really miss.

  • Hetai-Na

    When you uninstall Opera, it opens a feedback page in IE… Why don’t open this page in Edge just like chrome in W10?

    Feature suggestion: link preview in popup, just like Safari in Macbooks with the force trackpad.

  • MarkusMK

    I have an issue with hardware acceleration on Windows 10 (1607) 64bit with two SLI Geforce GTX 780 Ti latest Nvidia drivers.
    After a short time with activated hardware acceleration, remain Website and mouse hanging briefly repeatedly. Only a complete Windows reboot helps.

    • BK

      Is this happening only in Opera?

      • MarkusMK

        After Opera remain hanging briefly repeatedly, Windows 10 and other programm windows do the same. Even with Opera stable, looking some video and few tabs open. But only if hardware acceleration is activated.

  • Saskatchewan

    I don’t know when this has exactly changed (recently, for sure), but my Opera Beta doesn’t remember my open Speed Dial tabs any more after a restart. ๐Ÿ™

    • Kornelia

      What’s your operating system?

      • Saskatchewan

        Actually, this happens on all the three channels, from stable to developer.

        System: Windows 10 64-bit (WoW64)
